It’s late on a Friday, which can only mean one thing: an announcement from Facebook’s ‘Newsroom’:
Facebook and Instagram filed a lawsuit in US federal court against four companies and three people based in the People’s Republic of China for promoting the sale of fake accounts, likes and followers. They did this on both Facebook and Instagram as well as other online service providers including Amazon, Apple, Google, LinkedIn and Twitter. We’re also enforcing our rights under US intellectual property law for their illegal use of our trademarks and brand.
Curious to see the meat on the bones of this filing – have asked Facebook if they plan to share it.
